Kristian’s first success was Belching, an improvised play filmed in one shot and screened live, archived by the City Museum of Ghent (S.M.A.K.). He studied Stella Adler technique in Los Angeles and worked as a freelance producer, awarded the Cannes Lions Award by Coca-Cola for helping launch their biggest marketing stunt with names on bottles. Through his NGO, PORT ACTIF, Kristian helped exhibit video artists from Flanders at venues from Berlin to Hong Kong and beyond.
